BridgeWay 2.0 Ethernet to DeviceNet Gateway

The BridgeWay™ 2.0 Ethernet to DeviceNet Gateway (p/n BW4030) enables an EtherNet/IP Scanner or Modbus TCP Master PLC, HMI or other compatible device to act as a bridge or to perform monitoring and control on a DeviceNet network.

There are several options for how to operate the BW4030 module:

  • As a network bridge to send CIP messages from EtherNet/IP to DeviceNet or you can send Explicit messages from Modbus TCP to a DeviceNet network
  • As a DeviceNet Master that can monitor and control up to 63 Slave devices, including other Master devices operating as Slaves
  • As a DeviceNet Slave device that will exchange data with an existing DeviceNet Master

The BW4030 comes with a free downloadable PC/Windows configuration tool: BWConfig 2.0. It allows you to perform basic configuration and commissioning and view diagnostic information.

For operation as a DeviceNet Master, you will need a Scanlist configuration tool, such as RSNetWorx for DeviceNet or HMS Industrial Networks’ ACM Tool (provided free of charge).

Ethernet to DeviceNet Gateway
  • Operates as an EtherNet/IP Adapter and Modbus TCP Slave
  • Provides DeviceNet Master or Slave functionality on DeviceNet
  • Provides router/bridge functionality to connect EtherNet/IP to DeviceNet (CIP Routing) and supports Modbus TCP to DeviceNet Explicit message bridging
  • DeviceNet Master Scanlist configuration can be performed using a free scanlist tool provided by Pyramid Solutions or Rockwell Automation’s RSNetworx™ for DeviceNet
  • Supports automatic device replacement (ADR)
  • Supports configuration consistency value (CCV)
  • Supports DeviceNet Quick Connect client
  • Supports configurable input safe state behavior
  • Works with ControlLogix, CompactLogix, SLC5/05, MicroLogix and other compatible PLCs, HMIs and controllers that support EtherNet/IP/CIP messaging and connections
  • Compatible with most Modbus TCP Master devices
  • Supports FLASH field upgrades
  • Provides LED network and module status indicators
  • Includes DIN rail mount
  • Uses minimal DIN rail space (67% less than the original BridgeWay 1.0 gateways)

Commonly Asked Questions

How can I purchase a BW4030 device?

Please contact us for all inquiries regarding price, availability and distribution.

What is included with a BW4030 gateway?

Each BW4030 device comes equipped with:

  • One 3-Pin Phoenix connector for power
  • One 5-Pin Phoenix connector for DeviceNet
  • One free license of our configuration tool: BWConfig 2.0
  • User manual
What protocols are supported?

The BridgeWay 4030 supports EtherNet/IP Adapter and/or Modbus TCP* Slave to DeviceNet Master or Slave.

Note: The BW4030 can also connect to SIEMENS Controllers using Modbus TCP.

What is required, but NOT included?
  • A DeviceNet Scanlist configuration tool such as RSNetWorx for DeviceNet, HMS’ NetTool-DN-D or ACM (ACM is provided separately for free upon request with a BW4030 purchase)
  • A properly-wired and terminated DeviceNet network with properly-configured DeviceNet Slave and/or Master devices
  • A properly-wired and segmented Ethernet network
  • A properly-configured EtherNet/IP Scanner and/or Modbus TCP Master device
  • A PC or laptop to run the BWConfig 2.0 configuration tool and the selected DeviceNet Master Scanlist configuration tool
  • A Micro USB to USB cable to connect your computer to the BW4030 for BWConfig 2.0
  • 24 VDC power
  • DeviceNet network power (if not the same power supply)


Can I purchase a DeviceNet Scanlist Configuration tool through Pyramid Solutions?

Yes, Pyramid Solutions can provide HMS’ ACM tool for free but, only with the purchase of a BW4030 gateway. Otherwise, you will need to contact your Rockwell Automation distributor and purchase RSNetworx for DeviceNet.
